module 1

Finally I got the chance to start the course. I was on vacation before so it had to wait. Very good start so far. I never heard about the wallet syndrome before but that sounds very logical to me.

Better late than never! Laugh

The wallet syndrome is a male thing. Women don’t usually carry their wallets in the back pocket of their jeans. You can just look at every pair of pants which is manufactured for men – they all have the wallet pocket in the back.

I learned it the hard way by having lots of lower back and hip trouble. I could not figure it out. After all I was a vegetarian, practiced yoga, exercised, meditated and ate tofu. How could there be anything wrong with me. Hah!

Then a chiropractor told me about the wallet syndrome. I put my wallet in the front pocket of my pants, where it still is today, and I never had the back issue again. Or maybe I just ate more tofu – I can’t remember, this was maybe 25 years ago. Smile

Sometimes there are such simple solutions that nobody even thinks of it.

Also please take a minute and familiarize yourself with our certification check list just to make sure all the Ts are crossed and the Is are dotted:

module 2

Unfortunately I have some problems to stay logged in to the forum. After I just finished and pressed submit I suddenly was logged out and everything was goneCry

There was a lot of theory in module 2 which I like a lot. A question if I got it right: The straight leg lift is a general test if there is any compression of the sciatic nerve but not to test a special location.

Exactly. We are dealing with the source of the problem, which is generally in one of two locations: The piriformis or the lower back. From there the pain radiates out along the path of the nerve. That means pain can be felt anywhere in the back of the leg right into the toes. But we are not treating the spots where the pain is felt, but the source which causes it.

So you are not looking for the specific location where the pain is felt. That might be in the toes, for example. But treating it there is useless since this is just referred pain. So the purpose of the leg lift is to check if the pain is most likely caused by the sciatic nerve, not to pinpoint the location where the pain is felt along the path of the nerve.

Sorry to hear that you had your post disappear on you. This type of thing has happened to me in many areas of the internet over the years. It is just one of those weird cyber things which can be caused by bad internet connection, your browser acting up, a website being down or whatever other causes. Hard to tell what caused in in your case. 

One trick is to do this: When you are done writing your post, click Control A (on a PC) to highlight the entire post, then click Control C which copies the entire post into the memory of your device. Then you click Submit. If it disappears on you, all you have to do is reload the page, open up the post reply area and hit Control V. This will paste your entire post into the edit area again.
